The Jakarta Center for Law Enforcement Cooperation (JCLEC) and the Bali Police, supported by the British government, held a counterterrorism drill at Benoa seaport in Denpasar, Bali, on Thursday.

Bali Police chief, Insp. Gen. Petrus R. Golose said the drill was in preparation of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and World Bank Meeting in Bali in October this year.

"We guarantee that the meeting will be safe on the island," Petrus said after the drill.

Dozens of Bali Police personnel took part, including the counterterrorism squad and water police. The drill also involved other stakeholders like the Disaster Mitigation Agency and the fire brigade.

However, Petrus emphasized that there was no threat of a terrorist attack on the island.

"We are just preparing to enhance the capability of the Bali Police and other related stakeholders," he added.
